Weekend: Women . . . Mothers, Daughters, Sisters . . . and Friends

173

It’s the weekend!

And . . . it’s Mother’s Day weekend . . . in the United States.   Of course, many countries set aside a day in the year to honor mothers.  Anytime is a good time to celebrate women.  The weekend slowdown . . . gives time to be intentional . . . and bless mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends.

Stand Strong

When my daughters became mothers . . . I saw the gift of strength . . .  given from the women who came before us. The thing is . . . we stand strong together from one generation to the next . . . no matter what.

I know Mother’s Day can be difficult for those who grieve for their grandmothers, mothers, and/or children. Whether there’s been death, a broken relationship, an illness, struggles with childbearing, or something else, grief often goes deep this weekend.

We can give a gift of strength through an intentional connection.   I pray each of us will bless a woman with a word of encouragement and a huge dose of love.

A Strong Connection

It’s all about a relational connection with God and one another.  As we connect with God’s strong love we are able to connect with others through soul-deep strong love.

There’s work to be done when a connection is broken with an individual.  This requires working through the process of letting go of our need to be “right.”  The thing is . . . some people would rather spend a lifetime holding on to  being “right” . . . than to have restoration.  It’s a huge soul shift which takes deep inner work.

Once the need to be right is released, we are able to work on making the relationship right through love.  Sometimes we meet halfway on the “bridge of reconciliation: other times we must cross the “bridge” to the other side to make the relationship right through the power of strong love.

Of course, we can’t control the individual’s response to us.  There are those who would rather stay disconnected.  My advice is to receive their response with love, pray for the best in their life, leave the door of your life open for them, and be at peace.

Also . . . the individual may not understand or want what’s best for our personal life . . .  so, we must use wisdom in how and when we connect. In other words:  What God’s will for me is God’s will for you in our connection.  (This goes both ways.)

Love Is Strong

When we love, we understand strong love is . . . 

”  . . . patient; love is kind. Love isn’t envious, doesn’t boast, brag, or strut about.There’s no arrogance in love;  it’s never rude, crude, or indecent—it’s not self-absorbed. Love isn’t easily upset. Love doesn’t tally wrongs  or celebrate injustice; but truth—yes, truth—is love’s delight!  Love puts up with anything and everything that comes along; it trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what” (I Corinthians 13: 4-7,Voice).  

At the end of the day, the value of our life is based on love.

So . . . 

It’s a good thing to celebrate and bless women of every generation this weekend.

May God’s strength be upon every woman. It will make a difference. I know this for sure.

So.  Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or something.  Find a sweet spot during the weekend to create a calm space.

Pause. 

Breathe.

Listen.

Bless a mother, daughter, sister, and/or friend this weekend.

It’s all about women this weekend. . . Happy Weekend! ~Kerrie
